Arco Keijzer has been a SOA practioner since 2001, when he started being involved in IT projects for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. It came natural after becoming focused on IT integration while working as consultant for Cap Gemini.
The airline industry, being one of the first industries to adopt large scale automation and having to deal by nature with many locations, is not new to distributed systems communicating by means of events and services.
Today Arco is working for Air France KLM as an IT architect / consultant in a multidisciplinary team with the goal to mature the airline (its businesses and its IT community) in SOA; setting standards, selecting products, supporting projects, dealing with multiple IT platforms and many business domains.
Arco holds a MSc in Chemical Engineering from Delft University of Technology. He is married, father of three, and lives close to The Hague in the Netherlands.
